DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:50 P.M.) – The Islamic State has launched an assault against positions for the Syrian Army and allied forces in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor as the group suffers another defeat along the Syria-Iraq borders.

According to a military source, a number of ISIS militants attempted to infiltrate the government-held areas in Badiyat Al-Mayadeen and Badiyat Al-Qoryah located to the northwest of the border city of Al-Bukamal.

The assault, however, was successfully foiled with scores of ISIS militants killed and wounded.

Meanwhile, the US-backed Kurdish militia continues to attack – in collaboration with the Iraqi forces – ISIS pocket along the frontiers, seizing more territories and eliminating scores.

In a related context, ISIS’ last enclave in southern Damascus was fully liberated after the terror group was forced to accept a surrender deal.

The US-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that up to 367 ISIS jihadists have been killed in battles against the Syrian Army during the past 2 months.
